Oliver's teeth are key characters in the photo series, starting with the bottom two and quickly filling up his mouth over the next year.
Tsucalas didn't realized how useful this type of bib was until it caught a homemade smoothie as it dripped slowly from his son's chin.
"Oliver never turned down a meal, even when he was having a 'no pictures please' moment," Tsucalas said.
This picture was a turning point in the series, Tsucalas said. "A subtle smudge of a banana slice is somehow just as messy as a face full of pasta sauce."
"Never underestimate the artistry of a face full of pasta sauce."
"This was an unsuccessful attempt at escaping from this kind of bib. Velcro latching bibs gave way easily when he pulled on them, but these just got tighter as he tugged. He ended up getting it wedged between his mouth and nose, spilling the trough full of food over his neck and back. Good try, bud."
"My father has an unsavory habit of using his index finger to corral any remaining sauce or meat juices that might have escaped him during the meal and then licking it off his fingers at the table. Over the years this technique has rubbed off on my mom, sister, brother and myself ... This is the moment Michele and I began to wonder if it might be genetic."
